Option One
Windows 10 IoT Core
If being connected to the internet and automatically receiving the latest updates is part of your device scenario, then you can sign up through the Windows 10 IoT Core Commercialization process. All you need is a Microsoft account (formally Windows Live ID). This Windows 10 IoT Core product is well suited for early adopter businesses looking to create and commercialize their innovative devices.
If you are already a licensed partner with Microsoft or indirectly through an authorized Microsoft distributor, you do not need to go through this commercialization process. Contact your Microsoft representative or distributor for more information.

Option Two
Windows 10 IoT Core Pro
If you want control with fewer upgrades, the flexibility to stage and deploy updates when you want, or even the ability to turn off auto-updates then Windows 10 IoT Core Pro is what you need. Contact your Microsoft representative or find a distributor to learn more about licensing Windows 10 IoT Core Pro.
